Cubical City: 

Discover Prague through Czech Cubism

This year, the students will be given an opportunity to explore the interrelations between architecture and design in the context of the everyday. Moving through the city of Prague, they will examine seemingly invisible elements of architecture and think about their implications and purpose.

During the two weeks, a variety of lectures and excursions are going to be organized with the intention of giving the participants the widest possible insight into the context, materials and shapes of selected architectural pieces, as well as highlighting the interlinking of the abovementioned traits. Further, the students will be encouraged to design their own elements of everyday use, while demonstrating their understanding of and sensitivity to the local and historical context. This task will be done either independently or in groups, under the supervision of the organizers of the Summer School – an acclaimed Czech designer Jerry Koza and an emerging Czech architect Jakub Kopecký. ARCHIP’s Summer School is a unique opportunity for students to deepen their overall understanding of architecture, observing how the discipline relates to different fields of study as well as, in more general terms, to diverse aspects of life.

 

This year’s Summer School will be led by an acclaimed Czech designer Jerry Koza and an emerging Czech architect Jakub Kopecký. Koza is, among other things, known for designing a unique armchair Kotrmelec which was included in The Czech 100 Icons Project aimed at presenting the best pieces of Czech design and style made in the last hundred years. He is also the co-founder of the Atelier SAD which focuses on cross-disciplinary work on architectural projects of all scales and typologies. Kopecký just recently finished his Masters, having studied at Czech Technical University in Prague and subsequently at the Technical University in Liberec. He has varied experiences of working in the architectural field both in the Czech Republic and abroad.
